    Interview

    My first interview with the recruiter was very pleasant. She reviewed my portfolio and experience, first on the phone, then in person. She immediately referred me to the design director next. He was terrific. He was enthusiastic and engaged. He was excited about my work.
    The third interview was with the brand founder. She looked me up and down, barely looked at my portfolio and was quickly dismissive.
    I was later told that she wanted to see more "European candidates". (Both my resume and portfolio demonstrated my work with European designers like Valentino, Balmain, Armani, but she did not bother to view these). However, I am visibly not Caucasian. What could "European" possibly refer to in this case?

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Tory Burch (New York, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I received an email about setting up an interview and had a meeting with them a few days later. Interview process was very nice and simple. I first met with the talent acquisition manager and she asked the simple questions about my experience, education and personality. That same day I met with two other people in the department I was applying for. Did not receive an update for 3 weeks after the first interview. I got called in for the second interview 3 weeks later. Everyone was friendly and great but the interview process took a little too long. I waited a long time to get called back for the second interview and made sure I stayed committed to the company until I heard back. I don't think I will be presented with an offer after the second interview but it was disappointing to know they took this long to give me false hope. Otherwise, great people and very organized.

    Negotiation

    They usually start you off with a starting salary unless you have experience working in a luxury brand. If you work on the sales floor the pay is pretty good. Youdd have your base pay plus i think 4% commision of every sale.
